Arsenal are facing embarrassment today - and it's nothing to do with what's happening on the pitch.

A hygiene inspection has revealed that the club's Emirates Stadium is full of mice - a revelation which will no doubt prompt a flood of jokes from fans of other clubs.

According to the Daily Mail, inspectors found mice droppings in a variety of places, including around ovens, wash-basins and shelves.

The inspection also shows traces of droppings on all four levels of the stadium, which only opened in 2006.

The club are now obliged to remove all traces of the droppings, and it is likely further inspections will take place. Arsenal have announced they will take action to deal with the problem.

The news is unlikely to go down well with Arsenal supporters, who are obliged to fork out for some of the world's most expensive tickets to watch their beloved team play at the Emirates.

Arsenal have yet to win the Premier League since the Emirates opened 12 years ago, but the stadium, which cost around £390 million, has become one of the most iconic venues in world football and one of London's top tourist destinations.
